Oxnard Admits Capital
Visits Cost Him $20,
ALL HELD LEGITIMATE
Declares Most of Senators Are
His Personal Friends, but
Washington, D. C, June 14. Henry
T. Oxnard, millionaire vice president
of the American Beet Sugar com
pany, tcsti'ied today before the lobby
committee that he estimated he had
spent an average of $20,000 a. year in
Washington in the last 23 years in
behalf of the beet sugar industry.
He d'.lared not a cent had been
spent illegally. Each year when he
was at his home in Washington, he
declared, he came to the capitol to
watch legislation and see his friends
among the senators. Reed demanded
the names of senators who are his
"Most all the senators," replied
"You need not include me in that
list," declared Reed.
"well, I call Overman one of my
friends, and Cummins there and
di n't know so much about Nelson,'
Overman promptly asked Oxnard if
he ever called upon hm at his office
or house, or if he ever attended any of
Oxnard's entertainments. Oxnard re
plied in the negative.
HOSTILITIES. HKE Kl),
When F. R. Hathaway of the Mich

stand, hostilities again broke out be-
tweea Senators Reed aad Nelson
Reed insisted on having the witness
answer cne way. while ,-tN? witnesjn
persisted in answering another. ClTalr-
man Overman sided with Reed and
Nelson sided with the witness. Nil-
son finally quit his place at the com
rn'ttee table and took a seat in the
audience. He returned to the table
after Reed ended his examination
of Hathaway, and took the witness in
hand. Hathaway read several letters
that had passed between himself and
W. H. Wallace and H. A. Douglas ex-'
plaining what they understood the po
sition of President Wilson to be on
sugar before the election. Douglas
wrote Hathaway that after a meeting
in Detroit in the armory in September.
1912, he had seen WL'son and that he
had been assured that the beet sugar
interests need have no fear.
"You need not be one bit afraid of
me, Bir," Douglas quoted the presi
dent as saying.

The bill has been in conference
Eince May 9. It is almost an exact
duplicate of the measure vetoed by
President Taft at the end of his ad
ministration because it contained the
provision that none of the money ap
propriated for the enforcement of the
Sherman anti-trust law should be used
to prosecute labor organizations or
farmers' associations. Delay In acting

Deputy Able to Handle

Worker Tells of Being Lined Up
With Others Before Gat
ling Gun in South.
Charleston, W. Va., June 14. Happy
and contented people living wholesome
lives among the hills of West Vir
ginia, throw n into a reign of terror by
an industrial strike, was described to
thj senate mine strike investigating
committee today. Former Governor
Glasscock and a group of men and
women from the hills described condi
tions to the committee.
The men and women told how de
tectives brought into tlto strike scene
precipitated the troubles. Luther Hud-
nall was at Holly Grove i during the
strike. He was taken from his homo
by guards and taken to Mucklow.
"During the day they stood me in
front of a Gatling gun," he said, "and
at night locked me in a boxcar."
"Were you frightenei" when in
fr.ont of the Gatling gun?" asked Sen
"I never thought I would get home
no more," said the miner. Hudnall said
the guards told him they wanted to
"hold an inquest" over a dead man.
WIFE'S PLEA FAILS.
"My wife begged then, not to take
me," he said, "and they had taken hold
of me. They had taken hold of my
wife, too, because she hung on to em."
He was shown the body of a dead man
who he was told was Stringer, a mine
guard, killed at Holly Grove. He took
no part in the inquest and never was
accused ot participating in the killing
The witnessed named-the group of
men lined up with him before the Gat
ling gun and said that 22 men were
locked up in a box car. There were
no sanitary accommodations. '
Ed Bragg, a deputy sheriff, said that
for nine years prior to the strike he
was able to maintain law and order at
Paint Creek single-handed. The trou
ble began, he said, when the mine
guards were first brought in.
Glasscock made it clear ,to the. com
mittee that he had made two-attempts
to secure an agreement between min- .
ers and operators to arbitrate. In
both cases the miners were willing,
but the operators declined.
BREAK OCCURS IN
St. Petersburg, June 14. A com
plete breach has been opened between
the Russian go vernmenf anJ the Duma.
Members of the cabinet announced
today that neither ministers nor heads
of departments will appear in the
house "until conditions are establish
ed under which representatives of the
government will be secure from in
sult by members of the Duma."
The immediate cause of this de
cision was a remark by Markoff, a re
actionary member, during debates on
estimates. While the minister of
finance was speaking, Markoff cried
out: "Stealing cannot be tolerated."
He added his remark applied not only
to the minister of finance, but to all
officials. Those present thereupon
rose from their seats and left in 4
